Blatantly boasting a soft spot for all that beckons the eye to travel, Temper has a history of musing over China’s much-merited fashion league that is the nation’s stylistically multi-versatile ethnic collective — including 55 minors plus one Hàn major. All political connotations and affirmations aside. Prepare to be blown away by the blazin’ and brazen flashes from the camera of photographer Irina Kovalchuk (MOOI Studio Beijing) as she uncovers China’s southcentral hidden gems. Up close and personal, we get. “From Far Away.”
China’s various traditional minority dress codes have had an extensive influence on clothing hangers nationwide, comprising the full scale from hard-to-handle fabrics to exuberant embroidery to fantastical earrings.
Leaving behind the Hàn majority（汉族| hànzú in Chinese) aka 91.59 percent of the overall Chinese population in 2019, the sometimes borderline overbearing accessories found across China’s most southern belt — featuring some of Mother Nature’s boldest, most bad*ss and most beautiful accomplishments, one might add — are not always meant for the fainthearted sleek style sense lovers, but oh well…
A little edge never hurt anyone.
